Lena Dunham has apologized over her "insensitive" sexual predator remarks.
The Girls creator Lena Dunham has apologized for likening herself to a "sexual predator" in her memoir Not That Kind of Girl. Dunham - who was recently accused her sexually abusing her sister by the right-wing blog Truth Revolt - insists she does "not condone any kind of abuse under any circumstances" and didn't mean to be "insensitive."

In a statement posted on Time.com, Dunham, 28, said: "I am dismayed over the recent interpretation of events described in my book 'Not That Kind of Girl'.
"First and foremost, I want to be very clear that I do not condone any kind of abuse under any circumstances.
"Childhood sexual abuse is a life-shattering event for so many, and I have been vocal about the rights of survivors. If the situations described in my book have been painful or triggering for people to read, I am sorry, as that was never my intention. I am also aware that the comic use of the term 'sexual predator' was insensitive, and I'm sorry for that as well."
In another passage of her book, Dunham recalling checking between her sister Grace's legs and discovering "six of seven pebbles".
"As for my sibling, Grace, she is my best friend, and anything I have written about her has been published with her approval," she said.
Initially, Dunham - who had cancelled the remainder of her book tour over the incident - tweeted, "The right wing news story that I molested my little sister isn't just LOL- it's really f**king upsetting and disgusting.
"I told a story about being a weird 7 year old. I bet you have some too, old men, that I'd rather not hear. And yes, this is a rage spiral. (sic)"
